C.H. Epics Exquisite Masterpiece with Eastwinds
On Eve is 24 months old now, and already an AKC champion, having completed her Championship at just 10+ months old! We have completed her health testing, and are very excited for her future!
Eve is going to be exploring her options. Water rescue training was put on hold due to deadly algae discovered in local Massachusetts ponds, and lakes. We are excited to see what the future holds, and look forward to watching what Eve's going to be doing in the future! We are especially excited about future puppies!!
On Nov 3, 2019 Eve was having some fun showing out in West Springfield Mass and took "Select" for her first GCH points! Eve is lots of fun to show, and always meets every person and dog with a wagging tail !!
Thank you Terry and Randy for your great work with Eve while she was on the road showing! She is really growing up beautifully! Thank You Lisa Armstrong, for sharing this amazing girl with us! Thank you Nancy Heuther and Laura Watson! Thank you Artemis Tsagarakis who is going to be continuing Eve's training!

C.H. Tailcreek's Ripley of Eastwind
2019 "SELECT" Bitch at the Westminster Kennel Club dog show in New York!!!
She is just two points from her Grand Championship! Go Ripley!! So proud of this girl, and her happy wagging tail every time she steps in the ring!
Ripley, loves road trips, and enjoying her friends here at home. She is a happy, very loving-sweet girl! Even at shows her tail is CONSTANTLY wagging!
She is a tall, thick, and beautiful apricot girl who we enjoy very much. Ripley has had all of her health testing completed, and has passed everything with flying colors.
Ripley showed in the Nationals in Chicago last year where she placed 1st in 15-18 month bitches at the Regional specialty. Ripley placed 2nd at the National Specialty in the 15-18 month bitch class.
In April 2018 she took her first major the hard way, winning over 2 specials, for BOS/BOW at just 14 months! In August during a four day show in West Springfield, Ripley again made us proud! At just 18 months old she won four consecutive majors in four days of showing! The last full show weekend, (10/20-10/21) Ripley again showed beautifully! Two more majors, under different judges. She has completed her AKC Championship, and has already earned four majors towards her Grand Championship!
In January, at her first show of 2019, took Best of Breed for another Major!
In February 2019 Ripley attended Westminster Kennel Club dog show in New York City. She was a star the entir Kime time that she was there! She visited countless people in her travels, being an amazing ambassador for our breed! She was so well behaved despite the lights, and noise! She was happy to introduce herself, and give snuggles and slobbery kisses to all of the people that she met!
Despite the chaos of the city, she greeted everyone with a wagging tail!! Like every Mastiff, Ripley has the ability to make every person who meets her fall in love! In two days she made us so proud, before she ever entered the show ring!
During the Mastiff group, she was awarded a "Select" placing, despite some incredibly tough competition. We want to congratulate all the winners! All the owners, handlers and breeders who worked so hard just to be at this show.
We are excited to continue watching this beautiful girl mature!
Special thanks to Ripley's Handlers Artemis Tsagarakis, Carrie Klaiber, Anya Dobratz, and Steponie Erin Metzermacher!

Mastiff Zuevyh just another Masterpiece
Charlotte is happily retired.
Charlotte and her sister came to us from a kennel overseas, the daughters of CH Mastiff Zuevyh Big Boss and Imagin Zuevyh Du Ranc De Bannes.
Charlotte has an amazing temperament and is completely devoted to our son Jake. She is so sweet, and extremely mild mannered. She is the dog that you can take anywhere, do anything, and the results are the same... she steals hearts, earning cuddles and belly rubs!
Charlotte was not a fan of the show ring, but greatly enjoyed all the attention that she received ringside on show days!! She simply did not enjoy this, when their tails are not wagging, we do not force this on any of them. Those that show, have wagging tails at EVERY show, in every photo, and in every video! Charlotte does however enjoy visiting the local special needs adult group home, trail walking in the many acres behind the house... and trips all over with her family. She is very social and super sweet!
Both Charlotte and Rogue are registered with both RKF and AKC.
D.N.A profiles have been done and filed with AKC.

Rogue is happily retired.
Rogue, unlike her sister Charlotte, loved the show ring. She took RWB at her very first show at 6 mos., and later her first major at just 8 mos. She was retired from showing after a partial tear when she slipped, running on wet grass. The tear was not severe enough to require surgery, but left her with a slight limp with significant activity. She is happy being retired from showing.

Kitty Kitty Boom Boom
Boom Boom is happily retired.
Boom Boom is 11 years old, and a big part of our family. She is still healthy and very active, playing with the other dogs and her family.
Boom Boom is mom to Levi, Blue, Tillie, Leonidas, Sampson, Kira, Mongo, Milo, Mugsy.
Some of her favorite activities include; stealing all the apples off the apple tree, raiding the garden, and she loves to 'race' the puppies to the fence line!
Love that face!
Boom Boom was retired after only 2 litters, and is living out her years here with her family. She is enjoying others puppies and the good life. At her age she is still happy, running around with her 'puppies' and enjoying games with her family. We are so happy that she is still with us... we appreciate the fact that not all mastiffs see 11 yo, we feel very blessed. We hope that she stays with us for many years.
